OneRepublic are re-releasing their album "Native" with their hit, 'Love Runs Out.'
OneRepublic has been everywhere the past year, and it doesn't look like that's about to change. In a couple of weeks, they'll finish up the U.S. leg of their "Native" summer tour, and they've also been promoting their newest single, 'Love Runs Out.' New music wise, the band just recently released their new track, 'Ordinary Human,' and they're set to put out a re-packaged version of Native with a couple of extra goodies.
OneRepublic's 'Native' will be released next week
On August 11, Native will be re-released featuring six previously unreleased tracks, as well as the aforementioned 'Love Runs Out.' Despite the song being the band's most recent hit on the radio, it was actually never included on the track listing to Native, even though it was originally planned for it to be the lead single. "I wanted it to be the first single, a few of us in the band did, but I could not finish the chorus. And you can't have a song without a chorus," lead singer Ryan Tedder told CapitolFM. Clearly, Tedder eventually found the perfect chorus, because the song is a smash. Now it finally gets the spot on the album it was intended to.
Other tracks, like 'Life in Color' and 'Something's Gotta Give,' will be featured on the new edition, as well as acoustic versions of 'If I Lose Myself,' 'What You Wanted,' and 'Burning Bridges.' The songs aren't exactly 100% new; they were all at one point featured as bonus tracks when Native was first released. However, the re-packaged Native should act as a nice collection for fans that may not have heard the songs yet, or want 'Love Runs Out' at a specific point in the album sequence (it's going to be track two).
